This small century old building which housed a playhouse in the Society Hill old town section of Philadelphia, was once a small theater for people who apparently don’t like conventional theater.
Since the way of theater has changed, the small playhouse owner struggled in recent years, so selling the small Victorian building to developers who will build condominiums in its place. This is the sad fate of many old buildings these days, the good news being that the architecturologists of Olde Good Things were on the scene, prior to demolition to retrieve some of the great architectural elements from days gone by.
Here you see Olde Good Things salvage team retrieving the pressed tin ceiling, wainscotting and wall trim which was original to the building.
Now these panels are available for purchase online as well as in our New York Stores. Just email us and let us know you saw these here on the blog or visit us at any one of our Pennsylvania or New York City locations.
These are very unusual and will not last so contact us soon if you are interested. In the nearly 20 years that we have been salvaging antique ceiling tin, we have maybe seen these patterns once or twice. Figural tin is very desirable, this pattern is perfect for a wine cellar or restaurant atmosphere. Price for double angels with grapes is $395.00. Single angel is $175.00. Urns $150.
